Carlsbad Confidential shut down by “the man”

It’s official. As of tomorrow (June 15) Carlsbad Confidential will come to an end, and will be redirected to the “people” section of TMAG’s site.

My buddy Jason was starting to get a neat inside golf blog going there, but the corporate lawyers had something else in mind. Jason says his posts there will be basically the same. Time will tell.

The TMAG insider blog will have other people posting inside info there as well, so perhaps this will turn out to be a good thing. I do hope they revamp what they are doing there. Right now it’s just a bunch of ads and promotional paragraphs disguised as a blog entries, with no author names and no comments.
To me what makes a “blog” is the personality of the blogger and his viewpoint. Corporate lawyers will do whatever they can to eliminate that.

Perhaps Hooked On Golf Blog will have a new anonymous contributor who seems to have an inside scoop on the golf equipment world eh? :-)

UPDATE:

Jason has been kind enough to “clarify” my post on their situation and what they’re doing. So be sure to click on the comment link below for a more clear picture.

Thanks Jason
